Hey love, I really want to slow down with you. I want to slow down to discover who I am with you, together without repeating old patterns and yet-lived stories. I want to be with you holding every piece of me and every piece of you that arises. Love, I need to slow down with you to feel in every moment what’s true. And what is true is sometimes uncomfortable, sad and ugly. Being with you, parts of me that were hidden in the dark suddenly come out in the light. They come in the light with big, questioning eyes: “Can I also be loved by you, and by me?” Sweetheart, let’s slow down so that we can stay aware of the love that’s between us always when things get edgy and tend to tsunami us away.
